Shoaib Akhtar criticizes Jofra Archer brutally, Yuvraj Singh takes a cheeky dig at Shoaib’s Tweet

Jofra Archer being criticized in the second Ashes Test at the Lord’s Cricket Ground. On Day Four, the Barbados-born churned out a vicious bouncer that hurt Steve Smith around the neck. The batsman was in pain and had to undergo a concussion test. The batter was on 80 at that point in time and then he came to bat, only to fall short of a century at the score of 92.

At the time when Smith was helplessly laying on the ground, Archer didn’t go up to him. Rather, he walked up to Jos Buttler and had a smile, something which didn’t please the netizens by any stretch of the imagination. The people lashed out at the Test debutant and also questioned his sportsman spirit. The Sydney-born Smith was thereafter ruled out for the ruled out of the encounter.

Marnus Labuschagne became the first concussion substitute and he came out to bat in Australia’s second innings on Day five. Archer even hit him on the helmet once. However, he scored a gutsy half-century that helped the visitors save themselves from a defeat.

Shoaib Akhtar also known as The Rawalpindi Express twitted, “Bouncers are a part & parcel of the game but whenever a bowler hits a batsman on the head and he falls, courtesy requires that the bowler must go & check on him. It was not nice of Archer to just walk away while Smith was in pain. I was always the first one to run to the batsman,”

Here’s the tweet:

Yuvraj Singh, the former Indian cricketer, added a comic angle to a rather tweet from Shoaib. Yuvraj replied to Shoaib and wrote, “Yes, you did ! But your actual words were hope your alright mate cause there are a few more coming,”

Here’s the tweet:

On that hilarious note we believe Shoaib will recall all his bouncers delivered!!!
